Trinidad James, "All Gold Everything": The Suggested Remixes

Are you up on Trinidad James? He's a new rapper out of Atlanta that everyone's talking about. Above, the charming video for his hit single, "All Gold Everything." I like how he's dressed up like Jimi Hendrix. (Between Wiz Khalifa, Andre 3000 and now Trinidad James, Hendrix's rock-n-roll pirate style is enjoying a bigger moment in hip-hop than it ever has before, I think.) I also like how he's holding a puppy. ("It’s a baby dog and we’re really just chilling," he explained to Complex. "I want people to always feel like, 'I can chill with this nigga. He cool. If he can chill with [...]

(Although this is a terrible headline.) Still, they have set up, by my back-of-the-envelope calculations, at least 450³ possible jokes. Heaven! And yet, the lone commenter on this story at the Post is doing it wrong. Let's explain!


Mosquitos Show Even Less Regard For Basic Decorum Than We Thought

"Roughly one to two minutes after she starts feeding, an Anopheles stephensi mosquito will excrete urine and preurine through the anus, at the end of the abdomen. Sometimes a drop of the fluid will form and cling to the body before falling off; when this happens, some fluid evaporates like sweat and cools the mosquito’s abdomen by almost four degrees." —Great. As if mosquitos could get any more disgusting and insulting and life-ruining than they already are: While they're drinking our blood, they're also pooping and peeing. I have a suspicion, based on personal experience and a fondness for dumb puns, that this phenomenon is especially prevalent among [...]
